More than half of the TaxAssist Direct Ltd network of franchisees and their staff took the opportunity to invest in the business.

This management buyout led to the creation of an internal share site which all franchisees have access to allowing them to:

  • Trade shares
  • Access company accounts
  • Access the group strategic plan
  • Access all management information

This unique structure ensures that franchisees are completely engaged with the strategic vision of the business and, as shareholders, they have total transparency in everything the franchisor does. Franchisee representation on the Board of Directors provides the network with direct input at the highest level, contributing to the overall direction and development of The TaxAssist Group.

All TaxAssist Accountants franchisees, Master Franchisees, Area Representatives, country managers, Support Staff and franchisees’ own staff are eligible to purchase shares in The TaxAssist Group business.

New franchisees across all our markets we operate in have the opportunity to not only join a successful franchise network, but also to buy a stake in the business.

It has been a tremendous honour to lead the company for the last 20 years. When I looked around the office today at the fantastic support team we have built up, now numbering over 60 and knowing that more than 2,000 people now make their living from the TaxAssist brand, it makes me incredibly proud.
